- Key performance indicators (KPIs) for monitoring
- Data collections and verification of impact data
- Assessment report with effectiveness and efficiency analysis
- Performance analysis against competitive benchmarks
- Review of existing and potential initiatives
- Regular monitoring and verification of impact
- A gap analysis between realized and target impact of the enterprise and recommendations on how to close the identified gaps
What People Are Saying About Shujog
Shujog employed a well-recognized framework – one that involved Theory of Change – to help us engage higher-level stakeholders. This was important in identifying gaps in service delivery and helped form the basis of design for new programs.
The assessment was conducted professionally. Shujog helped to customise a questionnaire that will come in useful for the purpose of tracking future improvements. In addition, the qualitative responses of service users were helpful in sharing our stories to laymen.
Thanks in part to Shujog’s Impact Assessment report, TraceVerified was selected as one of 30 startups for SLUSH Global Impact Accelerator in Helsinki in November 2015.
Shujog expert team conducted independent Impact Assessment of TraceVerified during September-October 2015. As part of the Impact Assessment, Shujog team met and interviewed with farmers, food producers, government agencies supporting farmers and agriculture in Vietnam, conducted intensive market research, as basis for formulating Theory of Change specifically for the case of TraceVerified.
We thoroughly appreciated the professionalism, objectivity and supportive attitude of the Shujog team throughout the assignment. Shujog team engaged TraceVerified team from the beginning of the project and spent a lot of time walking us through the concept formulation, data validation and analysis process. They also helped to develop template and coached our team, so that after this exercise, we will be able to update the Impact Assessment report periodically by ourselves, using Shujog’s method and templates. This capacity building perspective of the Shujog Impact Assessment is highly beneficial to our team. Additionally, Shujog networked us with the investment private placement platform IIX for more impact investment opportunities.
In 2016, TraceVerified was invited by ADB to share experience working with agriculture value chains to facilitate cross-border agrifood trade in the Greater Mekong Sector.
I’ve never felt so thrilled to see what we carried out in the past few months finally come to fruition. All this would not be possible without the guidance and advice offered by you and your team.
